“Carl’s research-oriented perspective to the design and implementation of Cornerstone’s unique methodology is instrumental in customizing our programs,” stated Joe Thoresen, Cornerstone Founder.   “As an internationally recognized author and researcher on employee selection, job attitudes, employee assessment, and the role of personality in job performance, Carl’s expertise in training and in-depth experiences in test development are critical to each program’s success.”
Carl joined the Cornerstone team after working as Assistant Professor of industrial/ organizational psychology at Tulane University. He has extensive training and experience in test development and validation. After graduating from Northwestern University, Carl earned an M.S. degree in organizational behavior from Cornell University. He later completed his Ph.D. in human resource management with a minor concentration in personality and social psychology at the University of Iowa.


Founded in 1983, Cornerstone custom-designs and implements leadership development programs that help organizations transition their top talent into leadership roles. The Cornerstone process assists in the identification of potential leaders, provides a realistic job preview, helps them build skills, and affords them the opportunity to demonstrate readiness before they are promoted.
